Water and Oil "Fireworks"

This was a pretty neat activity and I'm sure kids of all ages would love this! It's called "Water and Oil Fireworks"! Everything you need for this you probably already have.

Here's what you will need:     
- jar or container of some sort
- food coloring 
- bowl to mix oil and food coloring
- vegetable oil or baby oil ( I used vegetable oil )

Directions are in the picture captions. Have fun!

Picture of all the ingredients

Put just a FEW drops of food coloring in the oil ( I did 4 drops of red, 4 drops of yellow and 4 drop of green ) the first time I did this I used too much food coloring and it didn't work. After you added the food coloring to the oil stir.

Pour the oil/food coloring mix into the water jar.

Then watch your "fireworks"!!

So cool!
